Hiroshima Carp: Kan Otake leaves after taking line drive off right hand

by on May.28, 2011 @ 2:51 pm, under NPB

Kan Otake was hit by a line drive (right hand) off Atsunori Inaba's (HAM) bat in the 2nd inning and was removed from the game.  No other information is currently available.

This was Otake's second start since returning from right shoulder problems that sidelined him for almost a year.

UPDATE @ 11:44pm - According to Nikkan Sports, the ball hit Otake on the base of his right ring and pinky fingers.

UPDATE 5/29 @ 8:26pm - Kan was taken off the active roster today.  Seems the team thinks there might be a pretty good chance he suffered a fracture.  Kan is scheduled to get his right hand checked out on Monday.
